“…My next film, also shot in 35 mm, was The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz which was financed by the money I got from the screenplay award (note: for Signs of Life). The four actors got something, but the basic expenses were for the raw stock and the lab fees. It is a short film about a group of young men protecting an abandoned castle from imaginary attackers. It is the same kind of theme that I worked with in Signs of Life a few years later. People think they are being besieged, yet there is actually no enemy and they are left in the lurch.” — wiki
